This new Keyword Snooze feature will work in a similar way to the platform's existing snooze functions, which blocks posts from showing up on your News Feed for 30 days, whether they be from a person, a page, or a group. The primary objective of this is to avoid spoilers for specific shows, movies or events, but the applications could spread to avoiding topics you're simply sick of hearing about.

Facebook has introduced keyword snooze to allow users to block stories from their news feed.

The "snoozing" is temporary and lasts 30 days, at which point the user can choose to block the words again.

The option is fairly simple to use: if you see a post with the offending keyword - say "Infinity War" or "Game of Thrones" - you can select the option to snooze keywords from the post in the drop-down menu on the top right. Hitting that reveals a list of words from the post you can block future stories about. But I wouldn't be too anxious about that.

Muraleedharan says that the option is only for 30 days, but as Facebook tests out the feature, it could likely expand soon.
